(for the month of february, being the month of love, i am going to be doing snippets of things i adore from all bits of my life.)
I don't read books very often, even though I would really like to, but I do read a massive amount of blogs. All sorts of blogs- cooking, mommy, single, newlywed, anonymous. I also like to keep my blog somewhat credible & honest to my own opinion, which is the reason I don't offer sponsorship or do guest posting. I don't ever want to make others feel like they have to read my blog & I assume that if you are reading my blog- you are here for my words, not others. Doesn't that sound like vanity? I do see the upside to the marketing jive that is happening everywhere (& I would like to think that it's not for more followers) but for the healthy spread of other really lovely blogs.
with that said & not a bit of marketing intention, these are my very favorite blogs:
one : eat my scabs. I will give a disclaimer, if you are a young reader, this probably isn't a blog for you. Most of you know that I am an aspiring sex therapist. Not because I have had an traumatic experience but only because I know that sex weighs so heavily on a person's emotions. Eat My Scabs is an anonymous person who calls herself April. She writes her experience of being married to a sex addict & the infidelity that comes along with it. It is so raw with emotion. I haven't ever read a blog from the beginning to end until her's. She is a phenomenal human & her story is inspiring.
two : all the belles & whistles. Claire is an artist married to a boy with great facial hair. She is the right amount of cute & honest. Her blog will always be a breath of fresh air.
three : thriller with a "sch." Oh, how I wish she posted more often but every time this girl posts I laugh for days. I have been following her love story with "Neck" since the beginning. Another blooming love story with appropriate comic relief.
four : he and i. The likelihood of you already being attached to Lex & her family is rather high because she is too great not to blog stalk. She is just a lovely person, inside & out. Reading her blogs motivates me to be kinder.
five : word vomit. we're twins but she is funnier, so enjoy.
